Georgia Wartel Collins is a Swedish double bass player based in Norway. Jazz and improvisation has always been a strong life force for Georgia with both her parents active in the jazz and performance-art scenes. Her home was always full of live music and the house vibrated with creativity.
She started playing music at an early age, always intending to improvise. Georgia and her double bass found one another and entered a passionate, complex and long lasting relationship, developing a movement based approach to playing. Her vast explorations of the bass are always in motion.
Georgia graduated from the Conservatory in Trondheim 2019 and received her Masters degree from Conservatorium van Amsterdam 2022.
Beside her work with her solo project and her own trio 'Aila trio', she collaborates often with other inspirational music, dance and theatre projects. A few of them are:
JUNO, dance and music performance ‘I am not there, I am here’, Moby Dick with French/Norwegian theatre company Plexus Polaire, Liv Andrea Hauge Trio, ‘Kontrabassorkestret’ led by Ellen Andrea Wang, music performance group ‘The Rosehips’ and free impro duo ‘music for whales’.
